A chiral one-dimensional atom using a quantum dot in an open microcavity

In a chiral one-dimensional atom, a photon propagating in one direction interacts with the atom; a photon propagating in the other direction does not. Chiral quantum optics has applications in

Two-photon controlled-phase gates enabled by photonic dimers

Photons are appealing as flying quantum bits due to their low-noise, long coherence times, light-speed transmission, and ease of manipulation at the single-qubit level using standard optical

Tuning the Mode Splitting of a Semiconductor Microcavity with Uniaxial Stress

A splitting of the fundamental optical modes in micro/nano-cavities comprising semiconductor heterostructures is commonly observed. Given that this splitting plays an important role for the

Suppression of Surface-Related Loss in a Gated Semiconductor Microcavity

We present a surface passivation method that reduces surface-related losses by almost two orders of magnitude in a highly miniaturized GaAs open microcavity. The microcavity consists of a curved

A bright and fast source of coherent single photons

A gated quantum dot in an open, tunable microcavity now can create single photons on-demand with an end-to-end efficiency of 57%, preserving coherence over microsecond-long trains of single photons.

Strongly Correlated States of Light and Repulsive Photons in Chiral Chains of Three-Level Quantum Emitters.

Analysis of the correlated transport of photons through a chain of three-level emitters reveals two-photon scattering eigenstates, that are akin to Fano resonances or shape resonances in particle collisions and facilitate the emergence of antibunched light with long-range correlations upon crossing a critical length of the chain.

Dynamics of Many-Body Photon Bound States in Chiral Waveguide QED

We theoretically study the few- and many-body dynamics of photons in chiral waveguides. In particular, we examine pulse propagation through a system of $N$ two-level systems chirally coupled to a

A gated quantum dot strongly coupled to an optical microcavity

A gated, ultralow-loss, frequency-tunable microcavity device that establishes a route to the development of semiconductor-based quantum photonics, such as single-photon sources and photon–photon gates.

Quantum matter built from nanoscopic lattices of atoms and photons

This Colloquium describes a new paradigm for creating strong quantum interactions of light and matter by way of single atoms and photons in nanoscopic lattices. Beyond the possibilities for
